The K2 Press is a great ski for the younger or newer parks skier. It also makes a great ski for the young skier who is ready for his first set of adult skis. The lightweight Cap Construction with an Aspen Wood Core is stable at speed, yet still very playful for hitting small jumps or boxes in the park. Tip and Tail Hardware improve the durability of the Press to reduce the chances of splitting the tips or tails open when slapping down on poor landings. An 85mm waist is works very well on trail, carving turns, and will allow you to land tricks with ease. K2's Park Flex Pattern is symmetrical which makes it easier to ski and land switch. The Press has Jib Rocker that has rocker in the tips and tails and slight camber underfoot to ease in freestyle moves in the park and improve control everywhere on the mountain. If you are looking for a twin tip for the teenager or tween that is ready for their first set of adult skis to perfect park skills or all mountain skiing, the K2 Press is a great way to go!
